The messy truth – cupboard cravings update

After yesterday's post I've been thinking the picture of my cups collection looks way too tidy. Probably because it's not updated. This is what it really looks like:

They are double-parked and stacked on top of each other and I'm worried the shelf will one day fall down from the overload. I had to put the Orla Kiely cups and more somewhere else – I'm getting swamped and I want those glass door cupboards NOW.

Wow, your collection is even more envy inducing when it's all shown together! I'd love to have several glass front cabinets. I do have a simple painted white one that I was lucky enough to find at a thrift shop, but right now it's being utilized more for function (shop inventory) than aesthetic purposes.

Hei.
I dag så jeg et skap på Kremmerhuset som kanskje kunne egnet seg til koppesamlingen din.
Det var ca 1x1 m. Hvitt med glassdør og akkurat passe dypt til kopper og sukkerskåler.
Det er ihvertfall verd å ta en titt på.
